I'm in the market for a hybrid bike and had almost settled on a Trek 7100 for about $270 when I notice that REI had the K2 Arcadia (regularly about $430) on sale for $300. I don't know much about bike components, but I guess I reason that I'll get a better deal with the K2. Does anyone have any advice about how to proceed? (BTW, I was also considering the Raliegh C30 and the Giant Cyprus).
In particular I'd like to hear anyone's experience with the K2 hybrids.
Thanks for the advice.
